An Iranian survey shows that Iranian women became the 7th largest cosmetics consumer in the world, the satellite Press TV reported on Thursday.

According to the report, about 14 million Iranian women spend 2. 1 billion U.S. dollars on various brands and types of cosmetics annually.

Saeed Samadi, head of consultation department at Iran's Tose'e Mohandesi Bazaargostaran Ati (Future Development of Market Engineering) launched a survey on the money spent on makeup in Iran.

The research also suggests Iran has 29 percent contribution in the 7.2-billion U.S. dollar cosmetics market of the Middle East, according to Press TV.

The research said the high amount is mainly because half of Iran's people are under the age of 30.
